Produced from 1963 to 1968, the Jaguar S-Type was technically a more sophisticated development of the Jaguar Mk. II, offering buyers a more luxurious alternative. It was available with either 3.4 or 3.8 litre XK engines and featured longer rear bodywork among other styling and interior changes. Despite its extra weight, the S-Type's independent rear suspension allowed it to corner faster than the Mk. II, especially on uneven surfaces, providing better traction and a much smoother ride for rear seat passengers with the consensus that the S-Type offered significant improvements over the Mk. II in road holding, safety and ride comfort. It was described as 'a convenient family car, a businessman's express, a sports coupé and a grand tourer.'

This example is presented in grey coachwork with contrasting red leather interior and was first registered in December 1966. Our vendor informs us that, until recently, he was using the car for his short commute to work and he has had new brakes, front and rear and all new shock absorbers throughout, all less than 1,000 miles ago. A desirable 3.8 litre example, this car would be a great project and when finished we can see S-Type price improving when paired with the prices achieved for the less sophisticated Mk. II.

Guide Price £6,000 - £8,000
